1lb (2-1/4 cups)Black eyed peas( dirts picked out if any, and preferably soaked overnight)
1mediumRed bell pepper(chopped)
2mediumonions(chopped and divided into 2)
4medium irish/idaho potatoes(cut in quarters)
Salt/bouillon powderto taste
1TbspSugar or sweetner of choice( This is optional. I only use it when I cook blackened peas. I don't use it wit honey beans )
If beans was soaked overnight, rinse out, transfer to a pot and begin to cook.Measure out the beans. But if it wasn't soaked overnight, measure out beans, wash, transfer to a pot, add water and begin to cook.
When the beans starts boiling, turn off heat, Pour out the water in the sink, add more water, rinse without touching the beans, pour out water again, then add more and continue cooking. (This step is optional)
Add in 1/2 of the chopped onions, bouillon cube and sugar/sweetner ( you can use dried onions too) about a tablespoon or 2.
While the beans is cooking, prepare the sauce. heat up palm oil and saute the remaining chopped onions and habanero pepper for about 2 minutes and set aside.
Continue to cook the beans until it softens but still has about 1 inch of water above. Add the potatoes quarters and plantain chunks. (Use your discretion here, by this time the beans should be almost done. If it hasn't softened add a little water at a time and wait.)
Add in the sauce prepared above and the chopped red bell pepper,
Cover pot and allow it to simmer for 2 more minutes. Stir and turn off heat and YES your TRIPPLE P porridge is ready. How easy was that yo lol
